Alexis Bledel will be starring in Hulu’s upcoming 10-episode series, The Handmaid’s Tale, based on the dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood. Alexis has called the role “an absolute dream role,” starring as Ofglen, a handmaid and companion who “seems like a pious rule-follower, loyal to the oppressive Gilead system, but she turns out to be daring and subversive.” Ofglen is partnered with Offred (played by Elisabeth Moss) to do the daily shopping (well, at least in the books!).
